Name: Cromone Hackk'Dur Stunshock
Bio: Stunshock was born on a Gryk'lin farm on the planet Jeroa. Though his parents were not rich, they were able to provide a decent living for their son, and when he was old enough to hold a tool, Stunshock worked the fields with his father, chores he thoroughly enjoyed as they toughened him. As part of his Rite of Age, a ritual all Jeroan's must go through when they reach puberty, Stunshock left his home and walked into the Savage Mountains armed with nothing but a small, blunt knife. The Rite demands that the child cannot return until they bring back proof they have killed one of the wild Sheeran's (large panther type creatures) that roam the mountains. Stunshock was gone for over a week, and as his parents were beginning to think he may have not survived, Stunshock returned to the farm carrying the skins of three Sheeran's and fresh scars on his right cheek. He claimed that while out on the mountains, he had seen a vision, that he was destined for something more than simple farm work. His parents laughed at the tale, but welcomed their son home.
Stunshock inherited his parent's farm years later, but never forgot what he saw on the mountain. While retrieving supplies from a trader, his passenger ship was attacked by Orion marauders. Stunshock was able to incapacitate two before the young man was knocked out. Only the timely intervention of Starfleet stopped his execution and Stunshock knew then that was his calling. To join Starfleet and seek his destiny out. Selling his farm, he joined Starfleet and was assigned to the U.S.S. DarkFyre as his first post.
Name: Talaina Kazzur
Rank: Commander. First Officer
Bio: Talaina is a descendant of a proud military family. From a young age, she was taught how to use weapons and combat tactics, skills she continued to practice even when she joined the Academy. Most of her life had been military orientated, leaving little room for any socialising. Talaina had wished to join the Andorian Imperial Fleet, inspired by stories of her ancestor, but the closest she could come was to join Starfleet. She made it clear from the beginning she was interested in a tactical career.
When Talaina joined the Academy, she was distant, hard to socialise with. But being around the other cadets eventually saw her begin to soften, and a chance meeting with Cadet Stunshock lead to the beginning of a long term friendship and stirrings of romance, but her military upbringing prevented her from acting on these.
Talaina was assigned to the Khitomer where she performed her duties flawlessly. When the ship was attacked by the Borg, she helped to co-ordinate the defence, and gladly transferred to the DarkFyre following the battle. She has developed close friendships with those on the ship, and being First Officer, views it as her duty to protect them. She was the DarkFyre's chief Tactical officer, a post she carried to the Sentinel until Mirat was promoted to Tactical, allowing Talaina to focus on her First OFficer duties.
Name: Emony Duria Bearlo
Rank: Commander. Chief Science Officer/Second Officer.
Emony has always been fascinated by why things work. From an early age, she was looking at the world from different perspectives, always wanting to know more. Her parents encouraged this and spent many nights reading scientific journals to her. At her mother's insistance, Emony trained to be joined, as gaining the life memories of a symbiote would expand her knowledge more than her mother could ever hope to achieve. However, Emony decided it was not for her, partly because then all the answers would be given to her and take away all the joy of learning them for herself.
Emony is a talanted science officer, always eager to make new friends and see what's in the next star system, her reason for joining Starfleet. She always wears gloves so she can safely handle any new item without making skin contact, to prevent any transfer of infectious diseases.
Name: Bosip K'zeph
Rank: Lt Commander/Chief Engineer
Bio: Bosip is very secretive about his past. He avoids talking about it and always changes the subject when it comes up. His official records suggest he was involved with something of questionable ethics during the Dominion War but these remain sealed.
What is known is that Bosip loves taking things apart and putting them back. It's hard to tell when he's off duty as he always has parts of equipment around him wherever he goes. Bosip can be difficult to approach in social situations unless he's been given a new toy to tinker with, or he's full of Romulan Ale.
Name: Xui Li Hui Zhong
Rank: Lt Commander/ Operations Officer
Bio: Born in Tycho City on the Earth's moon, Xui Li was the middle child of 3. She was taught to always be calm and respectful to everyone, traits she has brought to her Starfleet career. Xui Li has a great passion for astronomy, and nearly joined the astrosciences division of Starfleet, but her aptitude for organising was quickly picked up on and she was assigned to the Operations division. Xui Li is happy to serve in this position, as she recognises the importance of her job, allocating the resources of the ship to the various departments and solving any conflicts that arrises. She performs always with a smile and a friendly manner.
In her down time, she can often be found in Stellar Cartography, making sure she is well informed of the latest advancements. She has a fondness for tribbles, keeping some as a pet. She has been warned of the dangers of this, but has assured Captain Stunshock they will not overrun the ship. So far, she has kept her word.
Name: Frank Neville Roderick
Rank: Lt/Tactical Officer
Bio: Hailing from one of the old Maquis Colonies, Roderick was a child when the Maquis were wiped out by the Dominion. He and his mother were the only members of his family to survive, being among those who were rescued by Captain Sisko and Michael Eddington. Roderick does not have many memories of this time, but he does remember running, and fear at the sight of the Jem'Hadar.
Roderick continued to learn how to fight, and how to use people's weaknesses against them. His mother's final request was that he try to put away the anger of his past and move on. To this end, Roderick joined Starfleet, trying to learn their morals. At the Academy, he was constantly fighting with other cadets and any visiting aliens, a fact that was marked on his Starfleet records and has prevented him from advancing up the career ladder.
Roderick was finally getting himself under control, through the help of Bosip's friendship and the ship's counciler, but upon the arrival of Mirat and the others from the Dominion officer exchange, those old feelings resurfaced. Roderick and Mirat are constantly arguing, a fact not helped by the fact Mirat officially reports to Roderick as his immediant superior. Many times, Security has been forced to break up their fights. Stunshock has tried numerous times to calm the pair, but it appears they will never see eye to eye.
Name: Luawra Entra
Rank: Lt Commander/Chief Medical Officer
Bio: Luawra is the latest in a family of healers. Her mother was well known in her home town as the best doctor in the area and she made sure Luawra learnt this trade. Honouring her family obligations, Luawra rose to the task and became a doctor of equal standing. Deciding she wanted to see what else lay beyond Betazed, Luawra joined Starfleet, where she graduated highly in her class due to her sometimes unorthadox medicines she had learnt from her mother.
Luawra served on a couple of vessels before she was finally given the chance to be a CMO. Stunshock, needing a new CMO for his ship, was impressed by her service records and offered her a posting, which she gladly took.
Luawra uses her telepathic abilities in her work, helping ease the pain of her patients and to sense where they are injured without the need of medical instruments. Talaina mistakingly believes Luawra has feelings for Stunshock, and though they are still on friendly terms, a friendly rivalry has developed between the two.
Name: Jenna Diane Jones
Rank: Ensign/Conn Officer
Bio: Jenna was born on Celtus III shortly before a period of civil unrest. She spent her early childhood running from scavangers, living in the burnt out husk of buildings. When a Starfleet team finally arrived to investigate, they found the young girl cowering in fear, near death from the winter temperatures. Discovering her parents had been killed, the Captain took her onboard and adopted her. Jenna spent the rest of her childhood onboard the U.S.S. Crothers, learning about starship operations and learning to fly shuttles.
At her captain's suggestion, Jenna joined Starfleet and graduated among the top of her piloting class. Stunshock personally requested Jenna assigned to his ship, impressed with how she handled herself at the conn. Jenna intends to repay this trust by being the best pilot she can.
Jenna is a young woman, who takes time before she considers someone her friend, though she will always hope and look for the best in people. This is due in part to her early life and her rescue.
Rank: Chief/TRT Heavy Support
Bio: A large brute from the planet Hulkanio IV. Grimworm is a gentle giant, with a talent for spotting weaknesses in situations. He was piloting a small craft when he came under attack by Orion raiders. Stunshock's ship rescued him, and with his life destroyed, asked to remain on the ship if possible. Stunshock gave him a field commision,and assigned him to security. Although it takes a while for him to work up anger, once he does, he becomes an unstoppable juggernaught, plowing through enemies with his minigun.
He hates being compared to Orions, and will backhand anyone who suggests it.
Rank: Lt/Science Officer
Bio: *Data Missing*
Name: Bob Juffra
Rank: Lt/Science Officer
Bio: Bob has no complicated backstory. He was an only child and was raised with good morals. Upon entering Starfleet, he joined the sciences where he performs his tasks as well as anyone. An unremarkable individual, Bob is nonetheless always at his post when he is needed.
Name: Haraznk Cruzene Gweevle
Rank: Chief/Engineer Officer
Bio: Gweevle was found in a sealed chamber of methane, adrift near the Badlands. He is of an unknown alien species, with no memories of where he came from or even who his people are. His name comes from some text that was scrawled onto a note with him when he was found. Quickly growing into a young man, he adapted to oxygen quickly and was given a field commission by Stunshock.
Gweevle is somewhat eccentric, getting distracted by the most mundane things, but other times, can think so far outside the box no one can keep up. As he grew, he started to remember his native language, and sometimes slips into it when excited. Unfortunately, the Universal Translator can not translate it.
Rank: Not Starfleet/Ground security officer
Bio: Bred in the Gamma Quadrant, Mirat'Tiklan serves the Founders. He gives his life unwaveringly to them. He is participating in an Officer Exchange Program with a couple of other Jem Hadar and a Vorta.
Mirat is extremly tempermental and highly aggressive. It is suggested he is only taken on away teams that require a severe security presence. He does not socialise with the crew, only staying with the other Dominion officers in his down time. despite all this, he is an excellent security officer. He may argue with the Captain, but he lives to serve the Founders, and follows their command to obey Starfleet orders for now.
Rank: Chief/Security/Tactical officer
Bio: Gar was on of the few who was lucky enough to escape the Breen Confederacy alive. He requested Asylum with Stunshock who granted it after Gar helped him escape a Breen ambush. Gar often keeps to himself, overseeing the armoury and weapons lockers of the ship, eager to prove to his captain he is worthy of the trust.
Gar seems to have made good friends with Mirat. Not surprising given the close alliance the Breen and Jem'Hadar enjoyed at the end of the Dominion War. Gar has started to join Mirat in taunting Roderick, a situation that can only end in disaster.
Rank: Chief/Science Officer/Astrometrics Officer
Bio: *Data Missing*
Rank: None/Ship Pet/Good luck charm
Bio: During a mission into a Reman Mine, Stunshock and Emony discovered a baby Horta in the tunnels. Although they left the creature alone, it followed them out of the mine and snuggled up to Emony's foot, clearly wanting to follow them. They beamed him onto the ship and after running through a number of names to call him, someone shouted Jeff, a name the Horta burned into the deck saying it liked it. Jeff has no official role, but quickly endeared himself in the crew's hearts and has become their good luck charm, even when he causes problems by tunneling through the decks.
